Montana Fashion Week
September 26-28, 2014 @ 7-10pm, daily
Ticket information: www.montanafashionweek.com/events
When you think “Montana,” your thoughts might not immediately go to high fashion, but Montana Fashion Week aims to “…start a fashion movement and create positive change…You can rock fashion no matter where you live and work,” says Jean Rojas, Event Executive Producer.
Seventeen local and international designers will be showcased over this three day event. The event will also include a hair show, special guest America’s Next Top Model runner up, Kiara Belen, and special live performances. Each day will feature something different for attendees, as each designer brings something different to the table, explains Rojas. Immerse yourself in high fashion at the first Montana Fashion Week!
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Pioneer Park – Billings Public Schools
Saturday, September 27, 2014 @ 10am-4pm
Having settled into the back to school groove means it’s time for Saturday Live, the largest school carnival in the region that benefits the 39 Billings area public schools and the Education Foundation for Billings Public Schools.
This jam-packed day of family fun gets started at Daylis Stadium for the Saturday Live 2-mile Fun Run/Walk. Same day registration and packet pick-up begins at 7:45am. Warm up begins at 9am, with the run following at 9:15am. The 8 and under crowd can participate in the 100 yard dash. For more info go to www.efbps.org.
Live entertainment will be going non-stop from the main stage at Pioneer Park, including “Da Voice,” (based on the TV hit, The Voice) and a live animal show by ZooMontana. Go to www.planet1067.com to enter Da Voice.
The carnival includes fun for all ages. Returning Saturday Live favorites include the Haunted House, Troll Bridge, a climbing wall, rubber duck races, Nerf games, and a dunking booth. Beyond that families can expect over 80 booths for families to peruse and give a whirl!
All of that fun and fabulousness might create some hunger pangs, but no worries, there will be over a dozen food booths this year. Whether you need to satisfy your sweet tooth or nibble on something more substantial, there will be plenty of variety.
Parking won’t be a problem because two shuttle buses will be running every 15-20 minutes all day, dropping off/picking up at the Zimmerman Center. One shuttle bus runs from the Billings Clinic lot at 9th Avenue and 30th Street and the other will run from the MSU-Billings parking lot on Rimrock and Virginia Lane.
